Library Books.

The Library has been an integral part of our weekly routine for quite some time in various ways.  We've done story time, play dates and just visited frequently.  Lately, we've been checking out more books as Colin has begun to understand the idea of borrowing books from the library.

But it's kind of been a pain.  The books seems to float around and mysteriously disappear into our large book collection.

After spending quite a bit of time looking for a book today, I decided we needed a place for the books.

I found a basket that we weren't using any more and made a quick sheet to summarize our library books.

Now we have a place to keep our books and a way to quickly know how many we have and when they need to go back.

Have I mentioned how much I love my laminator?  Has to be one of my better purchases.

One more of life's little annoyances I hope I've banished for a while.  Anyone else struggle with keeping library books safe and collected?  Any other tips?


  1. I am stopping over from My Bored Toddler. This is such a great idea! Library books can be difficult to keep track of. We have library books from the city library and the school library to keep up with most weeks. I host a weekly link party called Made for Kids. I would love for you to come by and link you kid friendly crafts, activities, and recipes. It starts Sunday evening at 10pm EST.

  2. Our library books are almost always everywhere (and yes, a pain to look for). This is a great idea, keeping it all in one basket and putting a reminder of how many and the date they're due. Thanks for sharing on Toddler Fun Friday!
